Buying Local at the Market

We're entering the prime farmer's market season, which means that it's a great time to start buying locally. Purchasing locally-made goods cuts down on CO2 emissions (since the products have a shorter distance to travel) and helps support your local economy. So start buying local today: Take a stroll through the nearest farmer's market or visit Locallectual, a Web site that helps you find locally produced goods in your area.
